While most of us assumed Darkseid would be the chief villain of Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” movie — since the character’s iconic logo was teased in “Batman v Superman’s” Knightmare sequence — a new report suggests otherwise, positing that Steppenwolf is the primary villain for the film.
According to Birth.Movies.Death., “Steppenwolf has a contentious history with Darkseid [in ‘Justice League’], which could be why he’s invading the Earth. But stopping him – and, I’m assuming, his Parademon hordes – requires more power than the members of the Justice League can muster, and so they must turn to a dead friend for help…”
The site notes in the report that Darkseid might make an appearance at the end of “Justice League Part One,” possibly to set up “Justice League Part Two” — but asserts that the tyrannical ruler of Apokolips will be absent from the first “Justice League.”
In the comics, Steppenwolf is Darkseid’s uncle and leader of the army on Apokolips. Most recently, the character appeared in the New 52’s “Earth-2” and “Justice League” series.
“Justice League Part One” hits theaters on November 17, 2017, while “Justice League Part Two” is slated for a June 14, 2019 release.
